Former FC Copenhagen defender Brede Hangeland is happy to be back in Denmark for Fulham's Europa League clash with Odense.

Hangeland twice won the Superliga title during his time in Denmark, fending off resistance from Odense on both occasions.

The defender expects a similarly tough contest this evening and is looking forward to pitting his wits with Odense once more.

"When I was here they were the second best team in this league and I was lucky to be part of the best team in this league," Hangeland said.

"We had a few hard games against them. I expect the same tomorrow.

"It's a hard place to come to and they have great support. It should be a good game.

"Some of the fans will have seen me - it's only three and a half years since I played in this league.

"I have taken part in a few games on this pitch so hopefully they will give me a good reception tomorrow if they remember me."
